Looking back, I never had new clothes from a store when I was younger. I even didn’t have to pay the $100 fee for the A/P exam in high school.

In middle school, kids made fun of me because of my shoes.

It seems like that making a career and maintaining one is a side issue to these girlfriends.

High Schoolers who don’t go into college after high school end up being unemployed by 14% of the age range from 20 to 29, while college graduates are only at 5.8% (Rampell, Catherine.). As well, even if they don’t get their intended position with their degree they still make on average 82% more than their high school counterparts in that section of the job field. Which is a great thing for the college graduates, if they put the money they still can get a return. This gives the ones who can’t afford it a chance at least. And with the help of subsidies, from state governments that go to the school, they can boost the pay of college graduates with a four year degree and even those who don’t have a degree at all (Rampell, Catherine.).

Growing up I never had any dreams; dreams were impossible to come true. My mother raised me by herself and the only thing she ever taught me was to keep a job. I wasn 't introduce to college until I was in high school; never even thought about going, it was pretty much unheard of in my family. After graduating high school I enrolled at a local community college. I thought it was the right thing to do since I would have been the 2nd person in my family to continue my education.
